Again we are indebted to Gesner for the drawing of this Sea Monster.
Olaus Magnus, speaking of "The Monstrous Hog of the German Ocean,"
says:--"I spake before of a Monstrous Fish found on the Shores of
England, with a clear description of his whole body, and every member
thereof, which was seen there in the year 1532, and the Inhabitants made
a Prey of it. Now I shall revive the memory of that Monstrous Hog that
was found afterwards, Anno 1537, in the same German Ocean, and it
was a Monster in every part of it. For it had a Hog's head, and a
quarter of a Circle, like the Moon, in the hinder part of its head, four
feet like a Dragon's, two eyes on both sides in his Loyns, and a third
in his belly, inclining towards his Navel; behind he had a forked Tail,
like to other Fish commonly."
